    I entered the draft with the mindset based on what Spielman has done in the past. He did well in the draft & glad he proved my prediction wrong, rather than right. 1 better than average draft does not make a career by any stretch of the means & a GM needs to be judged by his body of work as a whole, not just the draft. People forget that and look solely at the draft.

    The same can't be said about my FA prediction, which you seemed to have left off.

    I noticed you didn't pull up last years predictions.

    2 Sun, Sep 18 vs Tampa Bay - Tough one. Will they continue to get better? My guess is yes, but they really didn't do a lot to improve the team except stay with what they had. Gonna go Loss.

    3 Sun, Sep 25 vs Detroit - Win. QB will probably be down by then. The loss of the RB in camp will slow their running game which will allow teams to continually tea off on a shacky QB. Win

    4 Sun, Oct 2 @ Kansas City - Tough one. Mostly cause I haven't looked at what KC has done in the offseason. I'm gonna say Win.

    5 Sun, Oct 9 vs Arizona - Another one that could go either way. Gonna go Win.

    6 Sun, Oct 16 @ Chicago - I'm not sure I like what they did by bringing in a big WR. That cat did great the last time he and Martz were together. I'm still not sure they've done enough to fix that OL though. Win

    7 Sun, Oct 23 vs Green Bay - Loss

    8 Sun, Oct 30 @ Carolina - Winn

    9 BYE WEEK
    10 Mon, Nov 14 @ Green Bay - We won't lose both games to the PUKERS. I'm just not gonna let it happen. Win

    11 Sun, Nov 20 vs Oakland - This team improved last year even though most didn't see it. Not sure if it will be enough though. Win

    12 Sun, Nov 27 @ Atlanta - To many weapons even for a much improved defense under coach Pagac. Loss

    13 Sun, Dec 4 vs Denver - Win

    14 Sun, Dec 11 @ Detroit - Win

    15 Sun, Dec 18 vs New Orleans - Loved what they did improving their Defense especially in the middle of the line. Loss

    16 Sat, Dec 24 @ Washington - What a mess. I just sit back and giggle at all the Deadskin fans down here. Win

    17 Sun, Jan 1 vs Chicago - We need a win. We get it. Win

    What is that 12 and 4? Gonna go with 2 upsets in here and say 10 and 6 or possibly 11 and 5.

    Rationale.

    a. Defense. I think that coach Pagac will be the difference. Under his leadership the defense will keep us in games.

    At somepoint, probably about week 2 or 3, Everson (who has been looking great in camp) will step in as the LDE in our base which will allow Rob to go back to situational snaps.

    Griff at the RCB spot will give us that guy who can take away the teams best reciever like we saw him doing before he got hurt.

    Husain and Tyrell will have good years because our DL will have a decent rotation finally.

    b. Offense. This is a bit of a worry. Starts with the O-coord.

    1. He isn't sure what scheme he wants to run and is now asking the players for advice (article out there saying he is going to get their input).

    2. OL. Herrera being out and the lack of a solid LT will cause inconsistency on the OL. Good thing is Dnabb can move a bit and will help that unit out for the first 3 or 4 weeks until they get their act together. Don't get me wrong, it won't be a great act, but it will be about the same as last year. Middle of the league.

    3. What I will give credit for is the scheme. I think Musgrove eventually pops his head out of his ass and he goes with what will win. Multiple TE sets and Dnabb doing what he does best. Dump it off to RB's.

    Mix AD in on passes and runs, sprinkling in a bit of Toby to keep AD from working to death early, and I think this team will do better than most of you think even with Musgrove running the show. :lol:
    Fun!

    Well we did get those two WR's in the draft, even though they weren't much of a factor, but I never thought our schedule was anything close to e-z. I thought we had a tough schedule for the most part.

    However... Ponder and our WR corps still leave something to be desired. Took a record-breaking season from AD to maybe make the playoffs. It's just not realistic to depend on that type of performance.
    Agree on the Ponder WR aspect. Its a miracle we made the playoffs with a run orientate team, especially when you consider that its a "Passing" league....snicker.....

    Well since YOU DIDN'T even make a prediction in this thread, I thought I'd find one in which you did.
